I must say as I sit here looking out at the blue sky, sun, mountains and lake, I feel very fortunate to live where it is warm all year long. Every once in a while my DH and I think we want a new adventure but we really can't think of anywhere else to live where the cost of living as well as the weather would be so good. It would be so hard to go back to where you would have to have either a heating bill or air conditioning. So here we will stay for a while. Yet I must admit I love new experiences. And loved when we first moved here and the excitement of living in a new culture. Soon though you will here me complain again as our little village's main 2 week festival is about to begin. They will be celebrating their patron saint, Saint Andres. Many of the streets will be blocked off in the village and amusement rides for the kiddies set up and many stands selling anything from special drinks to pots and pans. But once again we will awake around 5 am with the cohetes(fireworks) to wake the folks for early mass. The priest here is know for many, many cojetes. So once again I will go to bed extra early to get my sleep in prior to the early morning noise.
I do hope all my sparks buddies are doing just great.
I was happy to get back on plan yesterday after Sunday's splurge. The scales rewarded me with 1/2 of the 1 pound of water weight gone this morning.
Have a terrific day!
